Taylor Hicks really turned up the heat when he hit the stage at the Rialto Square Theater in Joliet, Illinois.
The Soul Man had his audience on it's feet boogieing along, as he delivered at fever pitch, one fantastic number after another.
He had us swooning and thudding when we heard his tag of "Let's Get It On", and "You Send Me" literally knocked me to my seat as it was so unexpected.
Back in November, I featured Taylor's smokin' hot performance of "Run Baby Run" from his Joliet concert in my blog post titled
'How To Carry On'.
Here is what I had to say in a nutshell:
"It was a bitter cold night and raining to boot, but inside the Rialto Square Theater, Taylor was on fire heating up the audience!
Let's just say even the non-smokers wanted a cigarette after this concert!"
"Run Baby Run" was just a taste, a mighty tantalizing taste, of how phenominal an evening this was, and thanks to The Boogie Board we have a full sampling of the heat Taylor Hicks' generated that night captured on their 'Jamming In Joliet' video presentation!
(Darlin' (DidNotExpectThat) this one's for you, so it will be forever embedded in your memory!)
